Flexible and Creative Ministry
Nobody stays at the same job for 40 years anymore. For most of us, even the suggestion of it is mind-numbing. We need a place where our talents are put to full use, our initiative and dreams have space to be explored, and where our passion to serve God is respected and encouraged.
One of WorldVenture's longest standing virtues is our room to move, room to change, room to re-invent.

FOR EXAMPLE : You might start in a small, rural church plant and after some time, you find that there is no good translation of the Bible in the local dialect so you join a translation team and shift to developing this resource. Then from this new passion, you begin getting opportunities to teach and share the things you are learning. You realize how much need there is to train others to do the kind of translation you are doing, so you step back and begin training. Some time passes and a local university wants to launch a new school as part of the university, and you shift again to begin building curriculum and classes to train more students than you could on your own. Once the school is established and you've raised leaders up to replace yourself, you see the deep need for more resources to train students, and you begin your fifth career with WorldVenture translating and publishing books.
Sound far fetched? It's not.
